  • Pakistan: Three militants killed by a suspected drone strike

The nature of the blast is yet to be ascertained, the FC officials said.

At least three people were killed and two others injured when US pilotless aircraft fired missiles along Pakistan Afghanistan border, local Urdu media reported on Friday.

Interior Ministry spokesperson Najib Danesh said two policemen and one civilian were killed and five people wounded. "This is just a propaganda of the Western media". Tribal sources described Mohib as a loyalist of the Haqqani terrorist network, an ally of the Taliban who are fighting US -led forces in Afghanistan.

USA drone strikes in Pakistan have become rare in the past few years.

The first United States strike under the Trump administration killed two men riding a motorbike in Kurram Agency in March, while the second suspected attack happened in late April in North Waziristan.

The US president unveiled his administration's new strategy in Afghanistan last month.

U.S. drone attacks inside Pakistan started in 2004. They've been, as we know, a source of some of the significant challenges in Afghanistan, in enabling the Taliban to rest and refit, plan coordinated attacks.

In a major speech outlining USA policy on Afghanistan last month, Trump lambasted Pakistan for sheltering "agents of chaos" and suggested ties with Islamabad would be adjusted immediately.

Trump, who had initially called for the withdrawal of American troops from Afghanistan, argued that his "original instinct was to pull out", but that he was convinced by his national security team to take on the militants there.

Cricket fans in Afghanistan have a record number of foreign players to watch in the ongoing Shpageeza Cricket League despite security concerns.
